Start a new tradition for your family this Christmas with this charming quilted advent calendar, the perfect family heirloom piece to enjoy for years to come! The calendar has a Scandinavian feel with a lighter colour palette of mint green, teal, mustard, charcoal grey, light grey and blush pink. The pockets feature traditional Christmas favourites like fir trees, wreaths, stars, mittens, stockings, snowman, Christmas pudding, gingerbread man, along with cute animal characters, a car carrying presents home and a little Scandi horse.
Personalise your advent calendar by adding a family name (e.g The Ambrosi's or The Ambrosi Family) or up to 4 names on coordinating cotton panel running along the base. Simply include the names you would like to add in the notes at the checkout. See photo of examples of names - I will confirm the colour options for letters and background with you once you have placed your order.

The pockets are pleated so can expand to hold more treasures for little and big people! Fill them with sweets, chocolates, little toys, crafts, baking ingredients, family treats like cinema tickets or a day trip even! The days run in numerical order from 1-24, but you can choose to have them jumbled up for extra fun! Note, if you go for the jumbled option the pockets will lie flat, not pleated.
The calendar is lightly padded with a layer of high quality wadding and woven cotton interfacing for added strength. It is backed in a coordinating festive print which you can choose at the checkout from Teal Twist, Blush Twist, Minty Forest or Grey Flurry dots (see second photo). Pictured here with the Minty Forest backing, there are two triangular pockets at the top of the calendar for the dowelling.
To make it extra special, I have finished off the calendar with decorative scallops in white thread beneath the pockets and added a trimming of white pompoms along the bottom with pretty painted wooden buttons in each corner. The dowelling is also included in the price so that you can hang the calendar straight away.
A truly special item to add a festive touch and warm memories to your home.
The personalised advent calendar will be rectangular in shape, measuring 18" (46cm) w x 22" (56cm); Pockets measure 3" x 2.75" (7.5cm x 6.5cm).

Personalised and customised items are non refundable. For custom items where fabrics have been obtained especially for your order, a pattern has been upscaled or downscaled to a custom size, a pattern has been modified or a bag has been created to your personal specification or personalised with a name cannot be returned for a refund as these are one of a kind products made just for you! Please ensure that you are completely happy with a custom bag description before you make payment.
My bags are handcrafted with the greatest care using high quality materials, interfacings and metal hardware. Never overload your bag with heavy items as this will cause wear and tear, spoil the shape of the bag and put a strain on the strap. Do not immerse my bags in water, or a washing machine! The layers of special interlining, interfacing and lining could displace or shrink in the wash and any metal hardware will become damaged. For fabric bags only: spot clean with a mild soap solution. Touch up any creases with an iron on a low setting. For bags with faux leather or laminated (wipe clean) fabric:Spot clean with a mild soap solution. Wipe clean gently with a soft damp cloth. Do not iron!
I only work with high quality laminated cotton (also known as slicker) from well known, mainly US fabric manufacturers. I keep a small selection of prints in stock which you can view at the following link. I can also source a few other wipe clean prints locally in (within the UK). https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.366530856715299.73176.243387722362947&type=3
I keep a very small selection of cotton prints in stock at one time but will consider ordering in locally (within the UK) for custom bags. If you would like some help with choosing a fabric, drop me a message with your preferred colours/style and we can take it from there. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.306389109396141.62988.243387722362947&type=3
I wrap my products in brown paper, tissue paper or bubble wrap depending on the item and use strong polythene mailing bags to ensure the parcel is waterproof. Larger bags will be packaged in a sturdy box. If you wish to send an item directly to someone as a gift, let me know and I will wrap it in pretty tissue paper and be sure not to include an invoice or price details with their parcel.
